Warriors topple GS to get into the win column
The Warwick boys tennis team collected its first win of the season on Monday, defeating Garden Spot 6-1 in a non-league match in Lititz.
The Warriors (1-5 overall, 0-4 Section One) took three of four singles and then put it in the books by sweeping doubles play.
Tony Deimler improved to 4-2 at No. 1 singles with an 8-0 shutout of Adam Wojcik. Luke Newberry (3-3) also made it look easy with an 8-0 conquest in the No. 2 match, and then Ethan Quinn (1-4) prevailed 8-4 at three. Brian Dieterle nearly completed a singles sweep, but fell just short to the Spartans’ Chris Hare, 8-7, 8-6 at four.
The duo of Deimler and Newberry then clinched the team win with an 8-1 decision in the first doubles match. Quinn teamed up with Dieterle to cruise 8-0 at two, and then Caleb Setlock paired up with Chase Henry to complete the scoring with an 8-4 victory.
Last Friday, the Manheim Central boys tennis team went 3-for-4 in tiebreakers and knocked off ELCO by a 6-1 decision in a Section Two match in Myerstown.
With the victory, the Barons improved to 4-0 in Section Two (6-0 overall).
Jack Rathmell and Colin Wolgemuth both improved to 5-0 in singles play with wins over the Raiders. Rathmell prevailed in a tiebreaker 7-6 (3) at two, while Wolgemuth took straight sets from Tyler Arnold 6-3, 6-3 at three.
Chris Good’s 6-4, 7-6 (4) victory gave the Barons a 3-1 lead going to doubles.
In the No. 1 singles match, Josh Kaiser took the early lead on ELCO’s Adam Bahney with a 6-1 first-set win, but dropped the next two, 6-3, 10-6, as Bahney earned the Raiders’ only win.
In doubles action, Kaiser and Wolgemuth persevered for an 8-7 (3) victory at one to clinch the team win. Rathmell and Good earned an 8-3 decision at two, while Austin King/Alastair Proud came out on top 8-4 to put it away.
The Warwick boys were also in action last Friday, dropping a 6-1 loss to Manheim Twp. in a Section One match in Neffsville.
Tony Deimler improved to 3-2 for the Warriors at No. 1 singles with a 6-2, 6-2 decision over Bobby Belser.
The loss dropped Warwick to 0-4 in Section One (0-5 overall).
The Barons were also on the winning side of things last Tuesday, March 26, dominating Pequea Valley in a 7-0 Section Two win in Manheim.
Josh Kaiser (6-0, 6-0), Jack Rathmell (6-0, 6-1), Colin Wolgemuth (6-1, 6-0) and Chris Good (6-0, 6-0) combined to lose just two games while sweeping the singles matches.
Good then teamed up with Alastair Proud to win 8-2 at first doubles, while the duo of Austin King/Jackson Crouse earned a 8-0 decision and Jeff Krueger teamed up with Micah Timmons to finish it with an 8-1 win.
Unfortunately for the Warwick boys, though, they were unable to get in the win column in a Section One match against Conestoga Valley, dropping a 6-1 setback in Lititz.
The Warriors’ Tony Deimler gave CV’s Darren Mast all he could handle in the first set before suffering a 7-5 loss at No. 1 singles. Mast then clinched it with a 6-3 win in the second set. Warwick picked up its only victory in the No. 2 singles match, where Luke Newberry upended Esch by a 6-4, 6-1 decision. More TENNIS, page B-4
